Bilic spoilt for choice as Hammers travel north

Hammers boss Slaven Bilic has taken a near full-strength squad to the North West for tomorrow's Premier League clash with Burnley.

With the likes of Michail Antonio, Manuel Lanzini and Pedro Obiang fit and firing on all cylinders once again, Bilic will be spoilt for choice when naming his starting XI for what should prove to be a tough test against a Clarets team in good form.

Notable absentees from the travelling party, who made the journey north by rail were Sam Byram, James Collins and Swiss midfielder Edimilson Fernandes, the latter of whom was hoping to make his first appearance since mid-August.

Meanwhile, Burnley boss Sean Dyche insisted that his team would be taking nothing for granted against Bilic's stuttering West Ham - having surprised many by beating Everton in their most recent Premier League outing.

"There's a lot of noise because we won against Everton, but we've got a lot of work to do," he told Sky Sports.

"We're looking at how we are producing performances and how we are working on the training pitch. The outside noise can take care of itself, we are just really focused on what we are trying to achieve."
